  • Last Week:
    • 3.3/6 HH rating [#3]
    • 4.57M viewers [#4]

  • Most notable for ABC was the network got very solid results out of the return of Extreme Makeover (the original version).
  • 8:00 p.m.: A repeat of Wife Swap (3.7/7 HH rating, 5.45M viewers, 2.0/7 A18-49 rating). 3.6/6 5.08 1.9/6
  • 9:00 p.m.: The return of Extreme Makeover (4.0/7 HH rating, 6.08M viewers, 2.2/6 A18-49 rating) not only improved the time slot dramatically over last week’s repeat of Nanny 911, but also grew very respectably from its last airing back in October of last year. That weak airing caused ABC to immediately pull the remaining episodes in the time slot. Judging from this first rating, it doesn’t appear that’ll happen this time. The show was up by 1.25 million viewers (26%), 18% among households and 47% among adults 18-49 from that last airing.

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “Two and a Half Men-REPEAT” will be reported in next weeks report for Monday, July 9, 2007.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
